Look to the “BOOK HOOK”

Reading is an interactive based activity where one creates meaning and/or gains knowledge through oral, visual or written text.  Children may not initially understand what you are reading but it is a way of stimulating your child’s senses and helping to create a love for books.  Reading is a means of acquiring language, communication and sharing information and ideas.  When reading books have exciting and interesting books available, let your child select a book of his choice.  Also, it is important to match your read with your child’s developmental level.  For example, at first, turn pages relatively quickly and just comment on pictures.  Then, as Junior’s attention and comprehensions improved, read one or two words per page, then read one or two sentences per page, and finally read the full text on each page.  Ask your child questions about the objects and actions in the stories.
